Very nice. Mostly got it for the looks. I didn't expect much in the acoustic tone area. A little better than expected there though. It's a bit "hairy" sounding. Not a whole lot of projecting. I probably could hold my own with a guitarist whacking away unplugged on a thin body acoustic and some bongos...but that's pretty much all you can do with most ABGs. So I'm not disappointed in the volume. I plugged it in. It runs a Fishman Pro-Bass 4-band system. Pretty good controls. Has a phase switch and a notch filter dial which is supposed to help with feedback. It seems to do the job. One problem I did have was with the bridge transducer. I wasn't getting even volume across the strings. E and A were remarkably louder than D and G. I popped the bridge saddle and tapped out the transducer then put it back in place. I put the saddle back in and restrung it. I think that may have done the trick. I didn't really get to crank it up to see yet if it's perfect, but I'm pretty sure it's at least better. (Anyone know if that's the right thing to do?) The tone I got was way better than I anticipated plugged in. It was a bit raspy, which I wanted, but I could really sparkle it up or cancel that out on the Fishman. Overall, it was sorta more P-bassy than a standard acoustic bass. Maybe the lack of wood-tone dynamics allows it to sound more like an electric. It looks totally cool. Built strong too. I'm not as worried about temp/humidity as I would be with a mahogany or spruce ABG. It does have wooden bracing inside. However, the neck is a composite multi-layer laminate. I will keep it in its heavy-duty cushioned case with desiccant bag. I had a little trouble with strapping it. The neck-strap button is on the underside of the neck. Pretty bizarre. I'm using a leather strap with one of those shoe-lace type of extensions. It's holding well, but the placement of the button makes the body tip slightly forward if you're not holding the neck. The other one has the 1/4" adaptor. It's a bit thick, and the notch it has is sorta smallish. I'd be very worried about the strap coming off...but plugged in you really don't have to worry TOO much about that because of the jack. Still, I think they could have been more creative on this minor issue. The set up was good. The action is really nice, but I'm worried that I don't know how to make any adjustments on this thing like I can on my slabs. Hopefully I won't have to be concerned. I'm not worried about any repair issues...it has a lifetime warrantee and I pass the plant when I go jogging (big plus). It's very light. It's not bulky like a Tacoma or Taylor or Epiphone. The look and tone will go well with the power-pop band I'm playing with now.
